1.  Paige Alder, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I love to plan. Love it to a fault, actually.

2.  What do you do for fun?

I’m single and I live alone. A long time ago, I heard someone say that we need to live our single years to the fullest and serve wherever we can as Christians. So, I don’t really do anything for fun because I’m too busy doing everything else. But on the off chance that I do have a spare minute, I really love to craft.

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Anything that requires confrontation.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

I’m afraid that I am not going to be pleasing to God. I try my hardest and I do everything I possibly can. I teach in the church nursery, I serve in the youth group, I’m helping my friend plan an anniversary party for her parents and all while trying to continue to work a usually over full time job.

5.  What do you want out of life?

I want to make a difference in people’s lives. I would love to be a counselor someday.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

My friend, Layla. And my parents. And I’m quickly becoming pretty good friends with the new guy at church, Tyler.

7.  Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

I would if I had time. I have been so busy serving that I haven’t really had the time to even read my Bible recently.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Everyone says that I have a problem saying no to people but I don’t think that’s the case. I just want everyone to be happy and I want to feel useful. I don’t see the big deal!

9.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

Nope. I am firmly a non-pet-person. All those pictures of the tiny puppies do nothing for me. I’m totally content with my living room carpet un-pee-stained.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I like it right here. I love technology. I love being able to text my friends or call my mom, since she lives three hours away. I love my church and the youth pastor and his family there. I love my life. I just sometimes wish it wasn’t so busy. Maybe there’s something to what everyone is telling me about needing to start turning some things down…
